Tip #1 - Create a Qualifications Summary

A qualifications summary should go at the very top of your resume. It does not explain what your professional objective or goal is, but but rather it communicates a clear and powerful overview of who you are and what you can do. This will showcase the skills that you want to convey to the interviewer.

 

Why don’t you want to use a professional objective? Because your resume needs to be focused on what you can do for a company versus opening with a statement that leans towards what YOU are looking for.
